After three quarters the Rams led 33-13 and it appeared they would finally get over the hump and win their first road game since November 1st, 2009. Pardon the cliché, but it ain't over until the fat lady sings, and it appeared she wasn’t ready to begin bellowing out notes.
As Denver began to catch a bit of fire and breakdown the Rams’ defense in the fourth quarter, you couldn’t help but say, ‘Here we go again.’ But thanks to a couple of crucial dropped Denver passes and Chris Long towards the end coming up with a sack, the Rams survived what would have been a devastating defeat.
But hey, a win is a win right? Sam Bradford turned in a great game; three touchdowns, 308 yards, and zero interceptions. The performance marked Bradford’s first 300 yard passing game of his career, first game with a trio of touchdowns and best passer rating of his career. I can’t wait to ask him Wednesday where he ranks this win in his career; you have to think it’s in his top five. Bradford has dominated everywhere he’s been, but obtaining an NFL road victory wasn’t easy at all, but he finally did it.
After this game, we now know two things: One, no lead is safe and two, the Rams can win on the road, but can they do it consistently is the question. We’ll find out soon because next week the Rams head to Arizona, then travel to New Orleans to battle the defending world champs.
